We’re in the people business.  We’ve been finding the right people for the right jobs for nearly 20 years.  We LOVE working with our candidates.  How can you be a rock star candidate?  When you come in to meet with us, take heed of these simple steps:

  • Be honest. Let us know your expertise and your expectations so we can match you with the perfect placment
  • Polish your resume. Make sure you’ve got a current resume uploaded to our site.  Don’t have one handy?  Use our resume template to create one.
  • Update your LinkedIn profile. Daily, 45 million profiles on average are viewed on LinkedIn. Will yours stand out?  Make sure it’s up-to-date and puts your best foot forward.
  • Be patient. Even if we don’t have an opening right now that’s a match for your skills, our phone is always ringing with new opportunities.

Now, you’ve met with a recruiter and you have been placed in your first assignment.  We are just as excited as you are.  So, what can you do to continue to be a rock star?  Don’t worry, we’ve got a plan for that too.

  • Share feedback. We love to hear feedback. Feedback is important and helps us for future placements with companies and type of position.
  • Be resourceful. Don’t understand something that is going on?  Utilize different resources to find the answer.  Ask a fellow coworker in the same situation, reach out to your recruiter or try a quick Google search.
  • Keep in touch. Keep us updated if anything changes with you.  Don’t be shy about checking in with your recruiter if your status changes.  Send a quick email or call once a month so we know what’s happening with you.
